Good to hear.

Not sure I understand exactly. Is the goal to simply
change/re-randomize your listen-port due to some weird quirks of your
router's NAT table, in which case `wg set wg0 listen-port 0` will
probably work better than down/up? Or is this actually a case where
adding PersistentKeepalive=25 could fix things? Both of these options,
anyhow, are available in the Windows client. wg.exe is installed into
system32 and works as expected.
